Mola Mola

The Ocean Sunfish or Mola Mola is the heaviest known bony fish in the world. It has an average adult weight of 2200 pounds, but some have been caught weighing in at 6000 pounds. The Mola Mola can grow to 11 feet long and are normally as long as they are tall. They tend to swim near the ocean surface with their dorsal fin poking above the water, which is often mistaken for the dorsal fin of a shark.
